Both CPUs have the same max Turbo Boost speed of 2.7GHz while the max base clockspeeds are 1.7GHz vs. 2.2GHz. When doing CPU intensive tasks both should provide similar performance because of max Turbo Boost speed.

The nVidia 840m is definitely more powerful than the Radeon R5 M230 which is less powerful than nVidia 802m.
